Executing a journey

After you execute a journey in Acquia Journey, your graphs will run in headless mode. In this mode, your graph execution will persist until you terminate it. The Acquia Journey Journey Execution panel displays the current state of all valid, deployable graphs linked to journey steps in a journey map.

Before you can execute a journey through the Journey Mapper, you must create a journey map, and a graph, and then associate that graph with your journey map.

Associating a graph with a journey step

You must have one or more graphs associated with a journey step for a journey to execute. To associate a graph with a journey step, complete the following steps:

  1. Sign in to Acquia Journey.
  2. On the main project page (accessible by clicking the Acquia Journey logo in the top menu), find the project that you want to modify, and click its Journey Mapper icon.
  3. In the Journeys section, click the name of the journey map you want to work with.
  4. Click Open.
  5. In the canvas, click the step you want to associate a graph with.
  6. Above the Edit Step panel, click Execution to display the Associated Graphs panel.
  7. Click Associate Graph.
  8. In the Associate Graph dialog, select one or more graphs to associate with the journey step by clicking the graph name.
  9. Click Associate.

After associating graphs with your journey steps, you can deploy your journey.

Deploying a customer journey

You can deploy a customer journey and all of its associated graphs by completing the following steps:

  1. Sign in to Acquia Journey.
  2. On the main project page (accessible by clicking the Acquia Journey logo in the top menu), find the project that you want to modify, and click its Journey Mapper icon.
  3. In the Journeys section, click the name of the journey map you want to work with.
  4. Click Open.
  5. Click the Execution tab.
  6. Under Journey Execution, find the Acquia Journey environment associated with the graphs you want to deploy, then click Deploy. If you want to deploy graphs individually, open the list of deployable graphs by clicking the plus ( Plus icon ) icon to display each graph.

Deploying graphs from this location is equivalent to deploying graphs from the Admin page. If you have more than one Acquia Journey environment, Acquia Journey will display the state of the graphs in each environment.

Execution mode

After the journey begins executing, any metrics associated with your journey’s steps will update in the All Metrics for Journey panel. If you have more than one Acquia Journey environment, Acquia Journey will display a list in the metrics panel to the right of the journey map.
